Full Description

Site of WWII Nissen Huts on Seabank Road, Invergordon.

The buildings were investigated in 2015 as part of the ARCH project 'Invergordon in World War I'. During WWI this area was used for dockyard accommodation, for the J block hutment. This building was removed shortly after WWI. A 1945 aerial photograph shows a large building (Canmore 348408), possibly a works, surrounded by a number of nissen huts. Only a small number of the nissen huts survive. The building is currently a sign shop and garage. Immediately behind (to the west of) the large building were two nissen huts oriented like the Sign Shop, and to the southwest of them, two oriented the opposite way. None survive. <1>
